Wherry's foamflower

native, fragrant, ground cover, rock garden, sun - shade
se US

Resembles T. cordifolia in most respects but, lacking runners, it forms a dense clump rather than spreading. The clusters of small white, pinkish-tinged flowers, which appear on upright stalks over a period of weeks in late spring and early summer, are fragrant and exquisitely attractive. Like T. cordifolia, it makes an excellent ground cover, particularly for situations where a spreading tendency would be undesirable. Easily grown, adaptable, beautiful, fragrant - an excellent native plant.
